With A Line that Long, it has to be Good – Nong's Khao Man Gai, Portland, OR

On April 16, 2012, in Portland, Travel, by satnightfoodies

While in Portland checking out some of the city’s many food trucks and carts, I noticed a particular cart that had a line clearly longer than everyone else. It was a very simple cart, no fancy paint job, but with a huge line so I was intrigued and had to check it out. They offer […]

Shabu doesn’t have to be Taboo at Tabu Shabu, Costa Mesa, CA

On April 15, 2012, in Orange County, by Mrs SNFoodies

Tabu Shabu is the new restaurant concept from Jeff Chon, the force behind reviving The Alley, a Newport Beach restaurant and bar. If you’ve never had shabu, it doesn’t have to be intimidating. It is a Japanese hot pot, where you cook your own food in front of you. It’s similar to fondue, where you […]

On April 4, 2012, in Portland, Travel, by Mrs SNFoodies

Somewhere in the Twitterverse, I found out about a place called Vault Martini. It is a martini lounge that offers over 140 specialty martinis. Yes, that’s right 140. They also offer 44 takes on the classic martini. For someone that has spent the last 10 years trying to create new martinis from scratch, this place […]

Not Just Another Korean Fusion Cart – Best Bulkogi Fusion – Portland, OR

On March 31, 2012, in Portland, Travel, by Mrs SNFoodies

I was a bit cynical to try yet another Korean-Mexican “fusion” place, due to the oversaturation of wannabes that have popped up and greatly disappointed me, but none of the other carts in this particular Portland pod were tempting my palette on this day. I ordered pan-fried vegetable potstickers and chicken Kogi tacos. Wow, was […]

On March 31, 2012, in Portland, Travel, by Mrs SNFoodies

When we took a second foodie trip to Portland, on the top of my “must-do” list was Teardrop Cocktail Lounge.

Spectacular Donuts in Surf City – The Donuttery – Huntington Beach, CA

On March 31, 2012, in Orange County, by satnightfoodies

Every once in awhile I get a craving for donuts.  The problem is most donut shops out there have terrible donuts.  They are usually old, heavy, stale and sometimes just greasy.  Yuck! Every once in awhile you hear about a place that people just rave about and it will either be really good or it […]
